Dang! (Yes, that is one way to get her out, and Constitutional).
Seriously?

Seriously, though unlikely with a Dem majority.

Article I, Section 5, of the United States Constitution provides that "Each House [of Congress] may determine the Rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two-thirds, expel a member."

No way her ongoing witch hunt isn't disorderly behaviour interfering with the normal business of the Government. (Of course what keeps them chasing their tails up on the Hill only costs us money, not so much our Liberty).

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

OK then.  Dream the dream, and keep hope alive. Don't forget to contact your representative to support this.  happy77

He's a 'pubbie, so he might. but a 2/3 majority to unseat her is highly unlikely.

Really?
Now you're sounding pessimistic like me.  Pick that chin off the ground and sing along.
